Winter’s End – Poem of the Month – March 2022

Winter’s End

Bare trees of March stand spindly
against the backdrop of a darkened sky
Lazy daffodils laden with hopes of Spring
trip over themselves waiting for daylight
to show them the way
A pale moon reflects its light on still water
sending a calmness into the crisp night air
Lone hooting owl breaks the night’s silence
A reminder that Nature never sleeps

    I love the sense of spring here… we are now very close to equinox and light is returning.

      Thank you! Yes I love the longer days we have now. You must be especially happy being so much further north ☺️ 🌞

    I think you subtly really caught the mood of early spring, at least very strongly for me, that feeling of it being a ravaged land, recovering from winter…very nicely done, powerfully

    This is such a beautiful depiction of spring, Christine! I love the daffodils tripping over themselves (though I don’t think of them as lazy). 😊 Nature never sleeps is so accurate–even when we think it does. Is that your art?

      Thank you Merril. The daffodils look a little drunk when they are bent over! The art was not mine but a lucky find. It even had an owl sitting on the bare branches! ☺️

        I saw that owl!

    Maybe it’s a good thing Nature never sleeps – we need something to watch over us!

      And she does watch over us, doesn’t she? Thanks for stopping by ☺️☮️
